The question of how to visualize and represent capital is central to On Nature, a speculative exploration of capital's real abstraction and its aesthetics. In an era when capital has become unintelligible in its complexity and the God's-eye view is normalized by our screens, the problem of capital is hidden acceleratingly. The false sense of mastery given by our screens and maps feeds an illusion of control when in fact we have lost control. The film On Nature decomposes images of our abstract, built and imagined environment in an attempt to adequately visualize capital and to align aesthetic practice with capital as a 'totalizing' form that gives the false feeling of unlimited progress and universality.
